    I can def see the benefit of partnerships like this, especially if, as more folks jump on it, it potentially gives Dribbble bargaining power to negotiate better rates for the group.

    Prior to working in-house I had to grab insurance on my own and it was always felt like a distraction (necessary but annoying). Back in the day our family was denied insurance for my pregnant wife, resulting in having to have our second baby out of pocket... which is... hard and nearly brought financial ruin our way. Suffice to say better systems for ensuring that designers going it alone are able to tap in to benefits with a cognitively low burden and better coverage is something I'm always supportive of.

    Hoping stuff like this continues to build and grow for them. High fives to Dribbble team for thinking out of the box here and starting to gnaw on a problem with deeply practical applications for freelancers in particularly (a good chunk of their user base). Hopeful that this will continue to grow and help more folks.

    Hey Max - we do have cmd+arrow to resize objects, as well as most of those selection mechanics and copy / paste styles. :)

    Glad you share my/our enthusiasm Ben... really looking forward to having you give it a go. This is a space very ripe for better tooling and support. I know you'll hit us with killer feedback like you always do when the time comes. Can't wait. :)

    Hey James- to think of this as Macaw v2.0 probably isn't the most accurate description since intents and key values (web design tool vs screen design tool) are slightly different between the two. That said in many ways I suppose one could consider this the 'spiritual successor' given that the same team (plus many others) is behind it and the tools do share several key 'DNA' pieces. Hope that helps. :)

  • Posted to InVision Design System Manager + Joins InVision, Oct 25, 2017

    Hey folks- two new related announcements to share hot off (and complimentary to) the Studio reveal last week. Here are the updates in a nutshell: team has joined InVision team has joined InVision

    Ehud and his team are phenomenal. If you’ve ever had the privilege of interacting with them in the past you’ll know just how hardworking and attuned to this space they truly are. Excited to be working together with this team moving forward. Speaking of which they’ve already been hard at work cranking on something very near and dear to all our hearts…

    InVision Design System Manager (DSM)

    InVision Design System Manager

    DSM is the result of taking the powerful product, integrating it with the core InVision platform, and expanding its scope and ability within the context of the broader design team. Practically speaking this means it is possible to create, update, and maintain your Design System via:

    • Web via InVision account
    • Sketch via plugin
    • InVision Studio via native implementation

    DSM works both internally (managing assets, symbols, colors, code, etc within context of your design tool) and also externally (easily generating a rich shareable web portal). Want to make your system public for all to consume? DSM makes that turnkey. Available December 2017.

    As always, will do our best to answer your questions in the comments. Peace! :)

    Hey Zsolt- London was on our initial target list (would still like to get it back on there if we can) but a few complicating factors made it difficult. Keep an eye on the main studio site as well as here: We have a good chunk of product team in your area so regardless of whether we can hit it with these events you'll def have more opps to see it / play with it there soon. :)
